SFTP through Cisco Pix on Non-standard port

I configured an SFTP (openssh) server inside my network. It runs on port 3000 (for example).
I setup an access-list on the PIX to allow traffic on port 3000 to my server, but my test laptop on another network gets "connection refused" when trying to connect on that port.  I can see the hit-count increasing on that line of the access-list so I know the traffic is matching.

I think its a pix setting? Will the pix only allow SSH through on the standard port 22 ?

Thank you,

Some clarification:

I can connect to the SSH server from inside the network on port 3000 , so that should rule out server settings or bad username/password.
I'm pretty sure it's firewall related - but access list is set to pass traffic through on port 3000.

Thanks,

Fixed it.
The PIX's xlate table had no entry for the internal server. Pinging OUT from that server created the xlate entry and the incoming SFTP connections started working.
